Walker answers Black Lives Matter question

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker stumbled through a question Friday about whether he would meet with representatives of the Black Lives Matter movement.

When asked whether he'd be willing to meet with activists, Walker dismissed the possibility by saying, \"Who knows who that is?\"

\"I meet with voters. Who knows who that is,\" Walker said, apparently referring to Black Lives Matter activists.

When pressed on the matter, Walker said he would \"talk to American voters.\"

\"It's the same way as saying we meet with the tea party. Who is the tea party? There's hundreds of thousands of people,\" he said.

Speaking at a Politics and Eggs breakfast earlier in the morning, Walker was asked by an African-American audience member what he would do to protect citizens from police shootings. He touted legislation he signed in Wisconsin mandating independent reviews of police shootings but also said that he believed most police were good, hard-working people.

He said, however, that police relations must be addressed.
